Unemployment is about as low as it gets, or is it? Some think the nearly perfect unemployment rate of 3.9% could dip as low as 3.5% -- which would be the lowest in fifty years. Experts say the Houston job market is strong.
"Right now is probably the best time to find a job in Houston that we've had in three years or so."
Harvey says it's not just low paying service sector jobs; he says employers in just about every category are hiring.
"Construction, obviously, if you have the kind of skills that are needed out there, there's still quite a bit of repair work going on; it's been a year since Hurricane Harvey and there's still a lot going on here and so that's where we've been seeing a lot of job growth."
Harvey says just about all Houston job sectors are doing well.
"Right now it's actually pretty broad-based; there's only one part of our job market here that's not adding jobs at the moment and that's information, telecom and publishing; otherwise the opportunities are pretty broad."
The national unemployment rate is 3.9% and if it dips to 3.7% that'll be the lowest since Woodstock, nearly 50 years ago.
